U.S. Open golfer shoots 18-over par in single round

The first two rounds of the U.S. Open went quite well for Toru Taniguchi. But the same cannot be said for the horrid third round he endured at Pinehurst on Saturday.

This is because Taniguchi shot an 18-over par for the round with an 18-hole score of 88. As For the Win points out, Taniguchi's scorecard looks more like a tropical storm than, well, the scorecard of a professional golfer.

As bad as the round was, Taniguchi didn't even come close to the all-time U.S. Open record for highest score in a single round. That record belongs to J.D. Tucker who notched a mind-bending 157 in 1898.
